I am fairly new to cake decorating and really would like to try using fondant. Does anyone have a good fondant recipe?
I see where every thinks that Wilton's doesn't taste good and I really don't have the money to buy it just to learn on it so I thought I could make it.
Also does anyone have a good tutorial on how to cover a cake in fondant?
Thanks for all of your help.
The marshmallow fondant (recipe on CC) is good. Sometimes it takes a few batches to get it just right, but I use it for everything. It takes 16oz. of mini-marshmallows, 1/4 cup water, 2 lbs of powdered sugar. I mix it in my KitchenAid mixer, but it works fine done by hand (although more work!) You will also need some shortening to rub on your hands while kneading the mixture. Here's the link: http://cakecentral.com/articles/105/mmf-how-to-decorate-cake-marshmallow-fondant

I LOVE Michele Foster's Fondant. I usually always make the white chocolate variation but this stuff is a very high quality fondant to be so inexpensive to make. I have made MMF but have never had the best results. I have never had any problems with Michele's receipe except the one time I didn't strain my gelatin mixture. Follow the receipe exactly as it's written and I guarantee you'll be blown away with your results
For workability and taste it is hands down the best fondant I've ever tried. Homeade or premade.
Is there a link to Michele Foster's fondant recipe? Thanks! I am looking for an alternative to MMF as it is too inconsistent for me.
